"If my Valentine you won't be,
I'll hang myself on your Christmas tree."
Yep. It's that time of year again! Time for the annual fictitious war on Christmas, waged yearly by the senile minds of Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, Bill O''Reilly, and and now any and every Republican nut job who wants to be considered one of the cool kids, when all they really seem to be is, well, paranoid! But this year, thankfully, that might have all changed. Apparently the new GOD of the Republican party, Donald J. Trump has won the war on Christmas, or so says, Trump ass kisser, Corey Lewandowski, just by getting elected, and the people all said HuZZAH! The war is over!
Honestly, how much longer could this ridiculous holiday tradition endure? How many more books could have been written, pimped and then sold, on a subject as empty as the paranoid War On Christmas? It was mildly amusing when folks first begin whispering about it, then it turned to irritating as one idiot after another droned on about how commercial it had all become, as they wrote and sold books, at Christmas time, to back up their claims.
HOW DARE LIBERALS WISH ME A HAPPY HOLIDAY?!
CHRISTMAS HAS BEEN STOLEN
BY HANUKKAH And KWANZAA I TELLS YA!
Because, you know, no one can hold more than one holiday in their heart at a time, well, Republicans can't anyway. But the rest of us can. And do. In our house we celebrate Christmas, and Hanukkah. Take THAT Republicans! You see, some hearts successfully celebrate so much love and friendship for Thanksgiving in November, that they become so filled with the spirit of the holidays that it inspires them to express their well wishes for Christmas, Hanukkah, AND Kwanzaa... with a little room left over for New Years! Now I ask you, is that really something to be terrified of?
Each year I have said it, and I will say it again this year...
The holidays, Christmas in particular, are as exactly as commercial as you allow them to be! If too much commercialism is spoiling your spiritual time... don't buy that book that complains about the very thing you find so unseemly. And definitely stay away from Trump's "Make America Great Again" hat ornament! Something I personally find offensive, because Trump profits not just off the birth of Christ, but because he profits off his presidency, and when folks buy into that they don't see that the very things they have been complaining about, they are now contributing to!
Tricky. Very Tricky!
But is it war? Of course not!
What it is, is, TACKY!
Is there a war on Democracy?
Time will tell.
Right now we have a choice about that.
Let's hope we always do!
If you have to purchase, or just want to purchase, some ornaments for your holiday tree, why not stick with something traditional...
A fashionable holiday Pickle
A pretty little tabby cat
A Carousel Horse
It's all good.
And it's all just as commercial as YOU choose to make it!
